MVU girls drop first game of season
Submitted By Ellie Orr
Mission Valley United, an under 13 girls travel soccer club, suffered their first lost while playing against the Pacifica Pioneers on Saturday, Nov. 6, by a 3-1 count.
In the first half, Shireen Warrior passed the ball to Elizabeth Rickey who took a power shot and scored in the top right corner. Later on in the first half, the Pioneers got a breakaway and scored, tying the game.
Goalie Emily Banks did a tremendous job, saving many difficult and powerful shots as usual. Pioneers, scoring another goal, took the lead in hopes of winning. MVU, however, didn't let that affect their game and continued to fight for the ball every time it wasn't in their own possession.
In the second half, MVU struggled to clear the ball from the defensive line, but when it did get to the forwards, they had many chances to score. In the latter part of the second half, an apparent missed offside call led to the Pioneers third and final goal, where the score would end. All in all, MVU played an aggressive game and is looking forward to their next contest.
